Fellow H&R readers, DON'T FORGET, the first episode of Al Dunning's series, "Untamed, Uncut," on The Discovery Channel's "Animal Planet" is set to run this Sunday, September 6, at (9:00pm e/p; 8:00pm c). On the show, Al analyzes footage of shocking horse accidents in Argentina and Mexico, and explains how the Argentinean and Mexican cowboys could have avoided the accidents by using more humane, safe, and effective horsemanship skills. (See the blurb in our September '09 issue in our Your Horse Your Life "FUN" department, page 21, for more details.)
Be sure to check your local listings to verify times; go to animal.discovery.com for specific dates and times of the following segments. IMPORTANT NOTE: We've been alerted by several readers (plus, Erin and I have been constantly checking "Animal Planet's" Web site) that the show is not yet listed on Sunday's line-up. However, I've been in contact with the show's producer, and it is supposed to air this Sunday, September 6. We'll let you know next week, if for some reason it doesn't.
Below are some pics of Al with "Animal Planet" cameramen and directors. To see a full behind-the-scenes slide show, go to HorseandRider.com this month. PHOTOS BY CHARLES BROOKS (brooksphotog.com).
Hope you guys get to check it out! If not be sure to record it. I'm pumped about it. After getting to know Al so well, it's going to be awesome to see him in action on TV. And, I wish I could enter his sweepstakes with H&R (but, er, think H&R employees are banned). Need alias, desperately. (For more details on his H&R sweepstakes "Win a Day with Al," see the end of this post.)
